I've posted two cards in my gallery today - both are for two challenges. This one is for The Inspiration Challenge and the Mix-Ability Challenge.
I was inspired by this Akimbo Classic Wallpaper from the Eskayel web store for my background. I sponged two distress inks onto a white panel then dropped large areas of water onto different areas and held up the panel to let it drip down. I toweled off the excess then blew it dry with my hot gun - the drips turn whiter as you dry it.
I die cut the panel with a Labels 18 Nestie and layered it to the white card base with foam dots.
I stamped the florals using the same colors as the background using stamps and dies from W Plus 9 that I just got after seeing so many beauties here and in blog land using this set!
I adhered the florals onto the panel - some flat and some on foam dots.
I love how this background came out - you never really know how the water will fall with this technique!

That background is Awesome! It's the first thing that caught my eye and love that you used two colors to create it! This is gorgeous!
